Newcastle ‘launch fresh bid’ for Sevilla defender Diego Carlos as they ‘push to sign the Brazilian before relegation six-pointer against Watford’

  • Newcastle reportedly saw an opening bid for Diego Carlos rejected by Sevilla
  • The Magpies are now waiting for the LaLiga side to respond to the latest offer 
  • Eddie Howe is looking to sign a new centre back in the January transfer window
  • Newcastle’s backline have conceded 42 Premier League goals so far this season

Newcastle have launched a fresh bid for Sevilla centre back Diego Carlos, according to reports.

The Magpies have reportedly seen an opening offer of £25million rejected by the LaLiga side but the club’s hierarchy have returned with an improved bid. 

Newcastle are now waiting for Sevilla to respond to their latest attempt to sign the defender, according to the Telegraph.

Eddie Howe is said to be on the hunt for a new centre back in the club’s first transfer window since its mega-money Saudi takeover.  

The Magpies’ backline have conceded 42 goals so far this season and, despite signing full back Kieran Trippier last week, the club are still in desperate need for reinforcements at the heart of defence.

Newcastle have stepped up their efforts in the pursuit of 28-year-old Carlos and hope to have a deal agreed ahead of their relegation six-pointer with Watford on Saturday.

The North East outfit had been linked with a move for Lille’s Sven Botman but talks look to have stalled.

Lille, who are eighth in the top-flight in France, are understandably keen to keep hold of the impressive young stalwart. 

Instead Newcastle could double their efforts to lure Carlos to St James’s Park and the Brazilian is believed to be keen on the move.
